Intertek Semko AB

Intertek Semko AB

Intertek is a global provider of quality and safety solutions, including testing and expert advisory services in the field of batteries and fuel cells. With more than 50 years of experience in evaluating battery and fuel cell technologies, we are recognized for our uncompromising independence and client confidentiality, world-class testing facilities, and well-founded application advice. Intertek assesses more than 20,000 batteries each year, covering all chemistries and sizes. Through our experience, we have developed a deep understanding of special operating conditions across a wide range of end-use applications.

Modeling Expertise

Mathematical modeling is an important complement to our testing services. Our modeling expertise and experience covers batteries, fuel cells, and electrolytic processes. For a manufacturer, modeling makes it possible to improve the design of electrochemical cells and systems, as well as understand possible limitations of existing designs. Through mathematical modeling, an application expert can simulate performance characteristics during different operating conditions and thereby accelerate an understanding of the new electrochemical system in relation to specific application requirements.

Examples of our modeling and simulation expertise are:

  • Battery modeling

    • Primary Batteries and Lithium-ion batteries
    • NiMH and NiCd batteries
    • Lead-Acid batteries
    • ZEBRA batteries
    • Potential and current distribution modeling
    • Design, thermal analysis, and failure mode modeling of cells and packs
    • Evaluation and design of thermal management systems
  • Fuel Cell modeling

    • PEMFC, DMFC, and SOFC (cells and systems)
    • Potential and current distribution modeling
    • Thermal analysis of cells and systems
    • Evaluation and design of thermal management systems
  • Modeling of electrolytic processes
